Fitness: love it and hate it.
Being intentional about fitness and exercise has become a part of my daily and weekly routine. For the last seventeen years, I have made an effort to exercise each week. Most weeks it is five or six days a week very rarely less. As much as this is a routine there are still many days that I dread getting out of bed and going to the gym or out for a run or bike ride. This is the hate it part…
The love part is knowing that being active is the right thing to do. I know that I feel better when I get in 5 or 6 days of exercise. I know that we are created to move and our 21st-century lifestyle does everything it can to be against intentional movement. I know that research shows I will have fewer days of being sick, fewer days of ailments and less chance of chronic and catastrophic disease.
So even though some days I might hate the thought of exercise, I know it is the right thing to do.
